The Seminole State cohort of MSc International Business program graduates traveled to Aberdeen, Scotland, on Dec. 5 to attend commencement and celebration ceremonies.

Carandang also serves as an internal stakeholder on the 2017-18 President Search Committee bringing valuable global perspective as a student and as a professor to assist the Board of Trustees (BOT) in seeking qualified candidates for the office of the president.

Additionally, Seminole State Bachelor of Science in Business and Information Management (B.S.B.I.M.) alumni, Karen Abdelmaseih and Donald Antoine, graduated with an MSc in International Business with merit.

The program provided students with an up-to-date knowledge of international business management, including key theories and concepts and also the ability to apply a significant range of professional skills, practices and techniques in international business management.

“Our mission is to prepare the innovative leaders of the future with the capacity to anticipate and manage change in international business and the professional environment. We strive to achieve this through teaching and research carried out in an international context and to the highest academic standards,” says Kirsteen Close, senior lecturer and program manager, Department of Management, Aberdeen Business School.

“We are very proud of our College students who not only achieved their master’s degree with honors, they did so in a third of the time usually taken to complete a master’s degree on a part-time basis,” notes Hugh Moore, dean of the Center for Business, Legal Studies and Entrepreneurship at Seminole State.
